Why Women’s Philanthropy?

Connecting women through volunteerism, engagement and philanthropy

Women’s Philanthropy empowers all women, through education, volunteerism and fundraising, to meet the needs of the Jewish community and build a vibrant Jewish future in Detroit, in Israel and around the world.

WP offers meaningful ways for you to make an impact on our Jewish community. Whether your interests lie in education, networking, fundraising or community service, we offer something for everyone. We provide wonderful opportunities to meet other women who share your interests and passions.

Dedicated women of all ages, through our hands-on community service and our donations, support Detroit Federation’s philanthropic and community mission. WP educates, inspires and connects women, leveraging the power of the collective. We fundraise, develop leadership and volunteer to make a profound impact locally, in Israel and around the world for today and for generations to come.

Enriching our lives, while impacting the lives of others

Women philanthropists are the change-makers and community-shapers of the world. We are sisters and daughters, mothers and friends, compassionate and committed women at every stage of life and career. Federation inspires and empowers women to become leaders and decision-makers.

Our collective philanthropy enriches our own lives while improving the lives of others. Discover how you connect.
